Over at Madamenoire there’s a great article about the 10 things that change after you have a baby.
My husband would disagree with me on this, mainly because I find that I’m late for work almost every morning getting myself and my son out of the door. But what I have discovered since having my son is I no longer need an alarm clock to get up in the morning. Maybe it’s because I never really slept. Sleep was…and still is…my best friend, but since I haven’t gotten any in over a year now if you include my pregnancy, I can now find a way to function in the morning and throughout the day
Speaking of being late for work every morning, it’s not just because I don’t get any sleep. It’s also because I find myself playing, laughing, wrestling and kissing my son all morning long. I wake up cranky and irritable, until I see his smile greet me as he gazes at me after his wonderful slumber. Then my heart melts and I forget how tired I am and give him hugs until I finally have to put him down so that I can take a shower. I get up in plenty of time to be on time to work, a friend’s house, or to run any errands – but I simply can’t resist him and suddenly nothing else matters. If I’m late, I’m just…late.
